Just an FYI - An injection of a third set of numbers makes shenanigans difficult.

Especially when the third set of numbers are similar to the other two sets.

Again, just an FYI for those asking about Bernie going Indy, or threads asking if he'll be a Ralph Nader.

No, he will not. His numbers are higher than Hillary when everyone votes. A full set of numbers injected making it three way, will show the real winner this time. Will he do it? Not for me to say. Just talking about numbers here......

4. When everybody votes, Hillary wins the majority of the time.

Open primaries thus far: 19. Hillary won 11, Bernie won 8. Pretty sure 11>8.

10. Do you understand the burden of proof?

You made the claim. Back it up. With facts. The fact that you're trying to get me to disprove your unproven claim shows you've got NOTHING. The burden of proof is on YOU and only YOU. You make the claim, you supply the proof.

21. This is common fucking sense.

In the real world, someone who makes a claim provides proof. You've made a claim, then deny proof, only to demand proof that you are wrong. That's not how intellectualism works. That's how fuckwits like Glenn Beck work.

11. A third set of numbers means nobody gets to 270

and the House chooses.

Not gonna happen. Even the All-New All-Ego Bernie won't go that far.

15. So awesome

then the House gets to appoint a president...the GOP House. Bernie should be shunned for all time if he pulled a stunt like that. and just like all so-called indies or socialist...they never accomplish anything worthwhile.

17. Yes, his numbers are much higher than Hillary's and they are much higher than Trump's too

Polling should be done to explore the possibility, and I suspect that he could win in a landslide.

Democracy is in great trouble when there is a two party system and so many barriers to founding a third party. The Republican and Democratic Parties are both minority parties (26% and 29% respectively). By far the most popular candidate in the race has been unable to obtain a lead in the Democratic primaries, because of all sorts of barriers, including election fraud.

Something similar was the case in 2008. Until the personal scandal that caused him to drop out of the race, John Edwards was by far the most popular candidate running nationally, and his agenda was closer to Bernie's than any of the other candidates. But he too could not get much traction within the Democratic Party.

What kind of democracy do we have when the most popular candidates nationally cannot get enough traction within the two major but minority parties?

27. Maybe we're flirting with Parliamentarianism. Seems right now

 

that there are de facto 4 parties: Trump, Republican, Sanders, Democrat. Neither of the "approved two parties" have enough without including the outliers.

Just a thought.

But one thing I know is that the thought of Clinton, Trump, or any other Republican as our next President I find terribly depressing.

28. He has people pressure. Ultimately much more effective as his email

 

list and supporters paying attention to what he says really do wield power.

We're already seeing contested candidates and new Bernie-type candidates (see Tim Conova, but there are more). If he got his millions to make calls to whomever to achieve whatever...bet it wields power to change rather quickly.

Bernie has momentum and coat tails, IMO.

29. This is still far from over.

Who know what the future holds? Anything can happen. Murphy's Law, karma, the FBI, the transcripts, the Clinton Foundation money laundering investigation, an Act of Dog. Who knows?

One thing I believe everyone (who is honest with themselves) sees whether they want to admit it or not....it will be impossible for HRC to win the general in a two party race. She has failed to connect with people under the age of 45 and never will win them over, she has alienated a huuuge percentage of Bernie supporters, she is slipping in her grip on people of color, and she has never had and will never get the Independent vote. All she has is the Third Way wing of the Democratic Party. I've been voting since '72 and I refuse to be told to sit down, shut up and cast my precious ballot for someone I have never respected and don't trust. Don't know what I'll do in November but that is so far in the future it is a waste of time to worry about it now. I'm with Bernie to the end and will support him in every way because he is the candidate of my lifetime.

31. The numbers add up to 97%

I'm assuming that the majority of the missing numbers would be mostly Green Party, which would almost all go to Bernie. He would also get almost all of the pure Indy category, and based on the huge negative favorability ratings of Trump and Clinton, he would also get the lion's share of the two lean categories. I'd love to see some 3 way polling.

But if it's done by any establishment organization, it's bound to underestimate Bernie's true share. He should get some pollsters of his own to do some polling.
